Wow, thank you all for your discussion. I did not think my thread would generate this amount of interest.
It is funny
, I have bought and sold cars before but never felt the emotion as with thinking of selling this boat. After having scrubbed it from bow to stern inside and out (twice) and lived on board a few weeks, I feel quite intimate with it, if that makes sense. Is having an emotional bond with ya boat okay or do I need therapy? : )
On a different note, yesterday I did a quick trip in a dinghy
down the Fitzroy River at Rockhampton to check out changes to sand banks. This is the river I would moor my boat on if it ever gets down here (or my next boat if I sell my current
one). According to my mate, there is significant change with the sand banks.
The river is not always this calm! However, I could quite easily spend a week or two on the anchor
, crabbing, avoiding crocodiles.
still quite fresh after flooding.
While some of the sandbanks are smaller in size, some are bigger.
It is not all mangroves.
